in new york city, living in other places across the country, nobody likes to see local hospitals shuttered. it's actually a very emotional thing for a community for a hospital to close its doors. i think that has a profound impact, actually, in terms of this ideological stance that republican governors have taken. >> this is going to sound bloodless to me but a what we're setting up is an expert where the politics of supporting obama care and the ideological tension on the right, whether you should tax wealthy people to finance, subsidize poor people is going to come into conflict with constituent issues. should we be shuttering that don't help, trauma victims and so on. i can't imagine that the firewall is set at 24 states that refuse expansion. some of them are going to crumble. you definitely could see this kind of system that extends in perpetuity where a lot of places just kind of leave these 5 million people and others in the lurch. >> doctor, one last one before we go. when a hospital loses funding, cut back services, shut their doors, do people who go to the hospital, is

from houston to kansas city, from chicago to indianapolis, memphis to charlotte, pittsburgh to boston and on over to new york city. fast-food workers in 100 cities across the country are walking off the job today to demand higher wages. right now the median hourly wage for fast-food workers nationwide is $8.94 an hour. that is about $18,000 a year, which is just above the federal poverty level for a family of three. the goal of today's strike is simple. workers want to earn a living wage of $15 an hour, a wage that would allow them to raise their families without having to live in poverty. their employers, mcdonald's, burger king, taco bell and wendy's have seen soaring profits while workers have seen little to no gain in years. last year mcdonald's brought in $5.5 billion in profits, a 27% increase over five years. its ceo makes $13.8 million a year, a 234% pay increase from the previous year. comparatively over a period of nearly 15 years, fast-food workers only saw their wages increase by $0.10 an hour. today the disparity between worker and ceo is so high it would take 9

by economic change in the great recession. these communities are no longer limited to the inner city. they're found in neighborhoods hammered by the housing crisis, manufacturing towns hit hard by years of plants packing up, land-locked rural areas where young folks oftentimes feel like they've got to leave just to find a job. they're communities that just aren't generating enough jobs anymore. so we put forward new plans to help these communities and their residents because we've watched cities like pittsburgh or my hometown of chicago revamp themselves. if we give more cities the tools to do it, not handouts but a hand up, cities like detroit can do it too. so in a few weeks, we'll announce the first of these promise zones, urban and rural communities where we'll support local efforts focused on a national goal. that is, a child's course in life should not be determined by the zip code he's born in but by the scope of his dreams.
